In an article for ITV News, former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith reveals the pressures the Government faces after a "terrorist attack".
The IMF says plans to reduce government debt are holding the economy back. It's the most forthright criticism yet of Osborne's austerity.
Alex Salmond, has set about trying to reverse the impression that a vote for independence next year will hit the Scottish economy.
A terror expert warned the killing of a soldier in Woolwich was "likely to be the kind of attack we will see in the future".
Dr Christina Hellmich, an expert on al-Qaeda and international terrorism at the University of Reading, said:
If what we saw in Woolwich yesterday was indeed an Islamist-inspired attack, it bears much in common with the concept of the 'individualised jihad', which has been propagated by radical Islamists for many years.
As I have said in the past, this is unfortunately likely to be the kind of attack we will see in the future.
But while these attacks are truly awful, this does not indicate to me that we face a 'wave of terror'.
The reality is that al-Qaeda, as an organised international movement, is a spent force.
A seemingly random murder is truly horrific - but it is hardly the activity of an institution which wields genuine international power.
Peter Clarke, who led the investigation into the 7/7 London bombings, said that if the Woolwich attackers did turn out to be acting alone, it showed the difficulty the security services faced in trying to stop them.
"An attack like this doesn't need sophisticated fund raising and sophisticated communications or planning," he told Reuters. "It can be organised and then actually delivered in a moment."
The Mayor of London has tweeted a picture of him and the Prime Minister meeting community leaders in Woolwich.
Boris Johnson tweeted: "Earlier today, I met with community leaders in Woolwich alongside David Cameron and local MP Nick Raynsford.
"Clear and overwhelming message from the community meeting - London won't be divided by this sickening atrocity."
Speaking in Israel, Foreign Secretary William Hague responded to the Woolwich soldier murder. He said: "As our Prime Minister said this morning, we will never give into terror."
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu added: "We wish to send our condolences to the family and to the people of Britain... We sympathise deeply."
British people are united across different faiths, different backgrounds in their horror of crimes like this. That is why terror will lose.From @Ed_Miliband on Twitter:
During a visit to Woolwich the Mayor of London said those guilty of yesterday's "horrific" attack would be brought "speedily to justice".
